I think her outfit is adorable but I was even more impressed when she told me that all the pieces she was wearing were from the kids store size 12.
The top is actually a dress that was ,of course, too short. She fell in love with the stitching detail on the waist of the skirt but again the skirt was too short so she bought two skirts and sewed on the extra ruffle by herself. The sewing she did was not perfect, not couture, the seams are not overlocked or taped but it works.
To me this is a big part of what The Sartorialist is about.
She was able to see past what something was and was able to get excited about what something could be.
The skirt wasn’t wrong it just wasn’t right for her….yet.
